I just want to celebrate

Today, I was using Mac Mail and I went to turn in my Timecard, so as "usual" I hit search in Mail.
I wanted to "see" what email for my timecard I turned in last week, but all Mail searches returned empty sets, in Mail and Spotlight.

I see the email, I search for it, and it says it's "not found", based on the search. I see it. I can touch it, copy/edit/forward if I want, just couldn't search for it.

And all my "smart mailboxes"...

The iMac is really working out great!
That App Store is like a Fast-food checkout.
Financial charges for "apps'. Some good, some shiite.
Sticking to the basics, working on automation via dictation.
The Sole Document I carried over from Linux? Timecard, which I remastered using Numbers.
Not that difficult.

I managed to get Siri to take dictation, so here'a my movie list that she typed.
Christmas, Im getting more RAM. 8 Gigs is OK for...

So, I bought an iMac

27" iMac.
So, I will be even less inclined to participate here at LQ.

Couple of annoyances on this new host, but NBD for a Professional.

Why? You may axe.
One reason, Siri is fully integrated into the desktop. I can speak and it responds.
23 years in IT and I am tired of typing.

Peace Out!

Target for this example is apache2, or "what were the defaults?"

Code:
mkdir -pv /path/to/temp/
dpkg-deb -x /var/cache/apt/archives/apache2_2.4.18-2ubuntu3.4_amd64.deb /path/to/temp/
Below /path/to/temp/ is
Code:
/path/to/temp/etc/
/path/to/temp/lib/
/path/to/temp/usr/
/path/to/temp/var/
remove all but etc, so
Code:
rm -fr /path/to/temp/{lib,usr,var}
and there they are!

Code:
/path/to/temp/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf
